    Hey zachturner009, I see it now.........now that you put the chest piece on that is.....looks good.......just something is off. Can't put my finger on it. Great work though. Keep it up.

    I guess in a way, it's cheaper, and I hate sanding, so I use the foam technique, over the pepakura technique.

    Im in the process of making my own armor which is a blend of the 2 techniques so i can see why pepakura would be easier for a helmet and why foam would be easier for armor

    Quite normal to have a pep bucket and foam suit.

    DarthDratinni it is typically more sturdy to have a pepakura and arguably you get more detail, but I think foam can easily get as much pop and detail. It is a little more difficult to paint as it wont come out as smooth, but it is flexible, lightweight, wont hurt you, and you can trash it/sit on it/fall off of a speeding motercycle as seen in the living with chief videos and you are going to be fine!(for the most part), also LOVE the house of wolves profile pic. Been a while since I have seen that!

    Into your Mk VI? I think odst boots might clash with the shins a little, those boots are contoured for the odst shins, which the odst shins kinda "rest/sit" on top of the odst boot, where as the Mk VI has a "gap" between the boot and its accommodating shin. The gloves might look cool with the fingerless on the Mk VI but it would probably look better with a full glove and the handplate, just because of the size of the forearms of the Mk VI

    Just looking at in now... I think the center section of the chest plate bulky. The profile of the plate seems to be coming out too far.
    I could be wrong though. I am kinda comparing it to mine.

    Yeah I saw that, I contact cemented and heated it up and pressed it flushly against the base chest, now it's somewhat more of a profile of an odst
    Do you have a thread on yours? Love to see it, so far I heated it up and contact cemented it down to get it flatter, I'll post some pics

    Alright, so here is my side profile, keep in mind going by in game ODST and the chest on the lower part does have a "hump", going to regret using that word, but here it is so far:

    Also going to start a second build that I am going to love, it will probably be the hardest one for me yet, but figure my skill is pretty up there now to tackle it!
